As you travel the back roads of Sussex County Delaware, you may not expect to find a 26-acre winery, but that’s exactly what you will stumble upon when you turn onto Blackwater Road. Look for the Salted Vines sign and behind it you will see our very first vines, planted in April of 2016. Since then we've planted an acre of Malbec in 2017 and an acre of Vermentino in 2019 on the land located behind our tasting room building. These original, two-acres of Founding Vines are marked with 48 end stakes and are planted with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Our plan is to add additional acres of grapes each year.
